We Care About Your Comfort

The Mount Rushmore KOA features five comfort stations with clean bathroom and showers. When it’s time for your clothes-washing duty, we have you covered with three laundries spread across our resort. There are also several fresh water spigots located throughout our property.

Bathroom towels and bedroom linens are provided for guests staying in a KOA Deluxe Cabin, along with basic pots, pans and cooking and eating utensils. These cabins are nestled in the pines and have decks, gas grills, cable TV and picnic tables.

The KOA has a camping kitchen with sinks, stove burners, and gas grills. There are several dumpsters and a dump station for your cleanups.

You can unwind after a long day in one of our two heated pools or one of our hot tubs. If you need to pick up some last-minute supplies for meals or camping, the General Store or Outpost Store will fill your needs. They have great souvenirs, too.

To help you stay connected while you are on the road, we have Wi-Fi throughout the resort; however, there is just enough bandwidth for guests to check email or look up a restaurant – uploading, downloading or streaming is not permitted.

You can reserve Old Palmer Hall or our covered picnic shelter for group gatherings. Call our group coordinator at 605-574-3404 for prices and availability.

Throughout the camping season you’ll be treated to live music, nightly movies, variety shows, Sunday worship services and interactions with our helpful staff members.
